noticed this today is it a fungas or a burn??
Whoa!!! What is that? Looks like velvet to me, but not a clear shot. I would be drowning his food in C and garlic....I know someone will pop in here and tell us what that is.
the makings on the head and upper body is a reflection Im looking at the the tail area.. it looks like bumps almost, I always do garlic, I put 3 drops in a day and then I also soak the food in it every other day along with zoe supplement.. I'l start to add Vit C into the tank.
Can you get a closer pic of that?
I'm guessing its probably some kind of cancer,but thats just a wild guess.
it just showed up today there was nothing yesterday
It may be some kind of isopod thats attached to the fish and borrowed into it.
just dosed the tank with Vit C, Garlic and I turned off the skimmer and added microbe-lift (ARTHMISS) 100% Natural Expellant for Bacteral Diseases
?? What can a person do about that??
you got any cleaner shrimp in there? also do you feed your tang any sea veggies?
yep 1 cleaner shrimp I have been giving seaweed select (red marine algae)
Cant really do anything until we know what were dealing with.
I'll keep trying to get a better pic
do you see two little black eyes?
Freshwater dip, I think is what I would do.
Looks like HLLE to me

I`m pretty sure that`s what it is too. It`s the beginning stages of it. Read these links and feed plenty of greens so he can get plenty of vitamin C.
